What happened?

You ask. Or maybe didn't notice...but I have sure felt my absence! I miss my blogging friends.. and I hope to be up and running soon.. My Laptop has died. It was old. It was its time. It has been good to me, but alas, our time together has ended. Which leaves me at the mercy of my husband's computer...with his dueling 2 monitors.. why does one need 2 monitors anyway? And with his countless numbers of programs he is running.. and the fact that he works from home. Well, folks, I am just not on the Internet anymore. Plain and simple. I need to suck it up and buy a new laptop... but.. with all of the things going on this summer with trips, and things to do with the fam.. well.. I just don't want to take any money out of our budget. So, needless to say... I will not be on the computer as much as I would like.

I do need to squeeze in some time and pop into your lives, say hello.. see what is going on. I miss you all and you are in my thoughts.. I will try to make visits this weekend! Until then, folks, I got my wish.. the sun has been shining and we have been in our backyard... playing in the mud and getting dirty. Aaahh... childhood. Gotta love it!

Take Care,

A finished piece and a new adventure...

Hi everyone!!
I wanted to show you one of my latest glass creations..I showed you what it looked like as I was working on it in my last blog post..or the one before last? I don't know, I can't remember.. anyway, so.. now it is done.. I am happy with it for the most part..

But, what I am even more excited about is my first ever sewing machine that I purchased with my dear friend's helpful advice.. it arrived yesterday... oooh, the plans I have for it! But, first things first.. I need to know how to use it.

Never have I ever ever ever used a sewing machine! Wish me LUCK!

PS: the tree in the background is another work in progress of mine.. works in progress...ha, I have a lot of those!

Enjoy your day!
